So Glad I Bought my Mac Air
Every evening my husband and I curl up to work/play on out respective laptops. Me on my Mac Air, him on this HP 311 netbook. My Air cost about 125% more than his netbook but each evening, I am reminded of how worthwhile that choice was.
After about an hour of computing nearly every night, my husband starts complaining that his computer is too hot. Considering that he bought the netbook to replace an older laptop that also inflicted leg scorching, it is an unfortunate situation. The HP 311 has great screen clarity, awesome video card, and even with Window 7, its lightning fast. But it gets very warm, particularly if one watches videos or plays video games, which is a frequent evening pastime.
The entire situation is typified by his comment that he is “very pissed off about this computer”. So I’m considering staging an intervention, selling the stupid thing on eBay on something, giving him my Mac Air and purchasing a new Mac Air or iPad. Honestly I don’t know what else to do. Suggestions appreciated or offers to buy if you’re willing to take the heat ;)
